Cat Meet Up in the Park Cat Fest Week
Grab a coffee or bring your own, grab a blanket or a chair, and head over to Paul Kane Park in Downtown Edmonton to join fellow leashed / outdoor / adventure cats and their people for a casual meet up to discuss all things cats.
Please note this is a very casual meet-up, no registration required (just show up, look for the cats and Edmonton Cat Fest banner!) 
We also remind attendees to be responsible cat owners! Only bring your cat on a leash, in a backpack, stroller, or other transport where your cat is secure and not roaming freely.
As this meet-up will be outdoors, it will be dependant on clear skies and warm weather. As we are not taking pre-registrations, if turnout is low, please just enjoy an afternoon at the park!

Cat Meetup Rescheduled
This year’s 2023 Edmonton Cat Festival is a WEEK of events! 
Rather than one big in-purrson event, this year we are hosting multiple, smaller cat-themed events from May 20, 2023 to May 28, 2023 as part of the first-ever Edmonton Cat Fest WEEK presented by Homes Alive Pets. 100% of purr-ceeds will be donated to Furget Me Not Animal Rescue. Since 2014, the Edmonton Cat Fest has donated $130,000 to local rescues.

Since 2014, the Edmonton International Cat Festival has held a cat pawty to celebrate cats, cat people and cat culture, while raising money for cat rescues helping cats in need (donating $130,000 for local rescues!) Since 2020 we have hosted virtual events due to the pandemic. 

While the 2023 in-purrson events will be smaller in scale than our typical one-day pawties, 100% of purr-ceeds raised from events and sponsors will continue to be donated to a local rescue helping cats in need. This year’s selected donation recipient is Furget Me Not!

We’ll also be encouraging you to take advantage of Cat-themed promotions across the city as part of the Cat Fest Week Cat Pawspurrt!
